He was a Revolutionary soldier of Virginia. He came probably with his
father, Col. John Tipton, in 1783 to Watauga County, and owned large
lands in Carter County. He owned the land where Elizabethton now
stands. The first court held in Carter County was in his house. He was
a member of the Shenandoah Baptist Church, Shenandoah County, Virginia
and brought his letter from that church, dated September 6, 1783 or
85, and presented it to the Sinking Creek Baptist Church on his
arrival in Watauga County. This letter was signed by James Ireland,
moderator. So that is where James Ireland Tipton may have got his
name. Samuel was very active in the Baptist Church in East Tennessee.

TIPTON FAMLY IN TENNESSEE.
"Colonel John Tipton was married 1750-1 to Mary Butler, daughter of Thomas Bulter, who was killed by the Indians on his farm on Cedar Creek, Shenandoah county, Va., at the beginning of the Revolutionary War. She bore him nine sons, to-wit; Samuel, Benjamin, Abraham, William, Isaac, Jacob, John, Thomas, Jonathan. Mary (Butler) Tipton died in Shenandoah county, June 8, 1776. July 22, 1777, Colonel Tipton was married to Marth (Denton) Moore, widow of Dr. James Moore, Shenandoah county. By her he had one son, who was killed in Clark's Expediton against the Indians 1782. Colonel Tipton is said to have had several daughters; whether by the first or second marriage is unknown, as are their names also. Col. John Tipton died, it is said, August, 1813, and, with his wife Martha, is buried on his farm on Sinking Creek, on the hill above the historic old house that still stands pratically unchanged since its erection before 1800.
"Samuel Tipton was born June 7, 1572, and died July 21, 1833, Carter county, Tennessee, nine children surviving him--Mary (Tipton) Boyd, Catharine (Tipton) Dunlap, James Ireland Tipton, Abraham, John B., Isaac, Samuel, Elizabeth (Tipton) Lacy and Margaret (Tipton) Kuhn. He was probably married twice, first to the widow Jemima Little, June 1776, Shenandoah county, and before 1792 to Susannah Reneau who died February 10, 1853, at the age of eighty-five years, three months, twenty-six days. Samuel Tipton owned the land where Elizabethton now stands, up and down the Watauga and Doe Rivers for seven miles." "Abraham Tipton, son of Samuel, was a soldier in the War of 1812, in Cole's Company and wounded at Selma, Alabama." "Albert Jackson Tipton, a grandson of the Samuel above (and a son of James Ireland Tipton and Nancy (Patterson) Tipton), was sheriff ".... "The late Albert H. Tipton of Elizabethton, who was fire marshal and assistant commissioner of agraculture, was a grandson of this Albert Jackson Tipton. Another grandson of Samuel Tipton, Sr. --Samuel Patterson Tipton-- has a brilliant military record in three wars:"...."his son James I. Tipton serving in the latter company as 1st lieutenant. Another Samuel Tipton descendant of Samuel Sr. served in the 13th Tennessee Cavalry, while a grandson, James I. R. Boyd, Captain of Company B, Fourth Tennessee, and two of his sons served with distinction--all in the Federal army."
